What I Remember About Desert Storm
 

My Father the philosopher,
who waited until I was knee deep
in a "popular war" to write me,
to explain the difference between
murder of Vietnamese Patriots
and killing of Iraqi Invaders.

The hundreds of  'Any Service Person' letters I received
telling me to "Kill all them fucking Ragheads"
for my country or at least a thousand.

The letter I received from a teenage girl,
which said  "War of any kind is wrong."

       She was the girl I dreamt of when I
       masturbated on those cool Saudi nights.
